Paphos-Polis Motorway Update

Published 22nd of January, 2023

Minthis View


The motorway will run next to Minthis HIlls Golf Resort for a time. There will be a junction above the resort, by Kallepeia, so I imagine the Resort Owners must be pretty pleased the motorway is going ahead.

An Appreciation of Scale


This shot demonstrates how extensive the works are. It is not always easy to tell with a bird's eye view just how big or small something is. The machinery down there is fairly large, so you can see how much land is being cleared.

Lower Crossing


Below Minthis Hills, the motorway will have to cross the existing Paphos - Episkopi Road. On the plans I saw, a few years ago, there was no sign of a junction here, so presumably they will make a bridge for the older road?

Obey Signs


When poking your nose around construction areas, it is important to obey the signs. I was able to come as far as I did in this instance, because there is a small ancient church here and they have made provisions for access.

Roll Your Own


One thing I liked was how they were using the hills they were digging through to provide the raw materials for their building work. This is very efficient.

The Paphos to Polis Motorway - Part 1

A new motorway is coming to Paphos. It will link the existing A6 motorway to the North West coast of the island, reduce travel time, and aid congestion on the B7. That's the plan, anyway. Alternatively, it will destroy precious natural areas and be an expensive waste of money. We decided to take a look at the proposed route for ourselves, so now at least you will know exactly where the motorway will go. Possibly.

Marathounta Wilderness

There's an area near Paphos that is surprisingly remote. I had been meaning to explore it for some time. And now, as they will be starting work on the nearby motorway soon, I thought it was the ideal time to visit. You may never get to Mars, but if you want a feel for what it might be like, you could do worse than take a walk through the countryside near Marathounta.
